Earth Day


It's Earth Day. This is our contribution to environmental awareness. We've written before about the disaster that is the addiction to plastic bags that seems to grip most retailers we've encountered in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Rather than revisit those rants, here is a picture of creative recycling.

Rowan spent most of this morning starting work on this as-yet-unnamed eco-bunny. By cutting some of our surplus plastic bags into strips and then twisting them into a simple twine she was able to crochet away. This style of crochet is called amigurumi and if you'd like to see more examples of Rowan's cute creations visit her blog or her online shop.

This bunny may yet grow arms and legs and find his, or her, way onto Etsy. Until then, we hope they will remind you to dispose of your unwanted bags responsibly.
